Johnny Gaudreau is enjoying the best start that a Calgary Flames' player has had in a while.
Gaudreau is the first Flames player since Phil Housley in 1994 to have at least nine points in his first six games. More specifically, Gaudreau has two goals and seven assists so far. "It’s just nice — you don’t have to worry about the outside people giving you a hard time or anything like that, and the team is winning and everything is going well right now," Gaudreau said. "But there will be another month and next thing you know, you’ve gone two or three games without getting on the scoresheet and your team is losing and, you know, you’re facing some adversity. I try to just play my game every single night. Whether I get a point or not or get on the scoresheet, I think it’s most important if the team wins." As Gaudreau said, there will be slumps along the way, but he's one of the league's top players and once the season's over, his points production will likely reflect that. Look for 70-80 points out of him this season. Oct 17 - 8:34 AM

Johnny Gaudreau picked up two assists in a 4-3 overtime win versus the Kings Wednesday night.

After being held off the scoresheet in the Flames' opener, Gaudreau has recorded at least a point in three straight games. He already has a goal and seven points in four games this season. He had something of a down campaign in 2016-17 with 61 points, but we're looking for him to finish back in that 70-80 point range this season.

Johnny Gaudreau registered an assist in the Flames' 2-0 win against Anaheim.

Gaudreau has a goal and five points in his first three games. It's quite the contrast from 2016-17 when he was limited to three points in his first seven contests. Gaudreau missed the 2016 preseason as a contract holdout and that likely contributed to the slow start he had last season, which was then compounded by a finger injury that cost him a couple weeks in November. He still managed to record 61 points in 2016-17, but given have the same roadblocks to face this time around he could end up with over 70 points this season.

Johnny Gaudreau amassed four points, including three assists, in Saturday's 6-3 victory over Winnipeg.

Gaudreau and the Flames were shutout in Wednesday's opener, but they bounced back in a big way on Saturday. T.J. Brodie had a rough game defensively versus the Oilers, but he was all over the scoresheet versus the Jets with two goals and two assists. Kris Versteeg enjoyed a multi-point showing as well with a goal and a helper.

Johnny Gaudreau netted a pair of goals in Friday's 4-2 win over the Arizona Coyotes.

Gaudreau missed all of training camp last year because he was in a contract dispute with the team. As a result, he didn't have as good a season as he had the previous year. Now that the drama is behind him, he should go back to becoming a top-end offensive threat. Gaudreau had 18 goals and 61 points in 72 games last season. He picked up 78 points in 79 games the previous year.

Johnny Gaudreau said it would be "sweet" to play for the Philadelphia Flyers someday.

Gaudreau grew up a Flyers fan. "I’ve got a ton of family here, all my friends — I actually have a wedding this week here in South Jersey," Gaudreau said. "All my friends come back here, all my good friends, and kids that I’ve played with my whole life are from South Jersey. So, it would be sweet to play here some day. You know you never know in sports, but it’s a lot of support back here in South Jersey and the Philly area." We'll see what the future holds for Gaudreau, but he's made a long-term commitment to the Calgary Flames, so he won't be changing teams anytime soon. This will be the second season of his six-year, $40.5 million contract.

Johnny Gaudreau won the Lady Byng Memorial Trophy.

The Lady Byng highlights the league's most sportsmanlike player, which usually translates to a highly skilled player that gets very few penalty minutes. In 2016-17 Gaudreau scored 18 goals and 61 points in 72 games while accumulating just four PIM. This is the first time he's won the Lady Byng Trophy, but it's the second time in three years that it's gone to a member of the Calgary Flames as Jiri Hudler won it in 2015.

Johnny Gaudreau, who is nominated for the Lady Byng Memorial Trophy, picked up just four penalty minutes in 2016-17.

Gaudreau was whistled for high-sticking even though it was actually Sean Monahan who should've received the penalty and for embellishment. "I just try to stay out of the box as much as possible so I can be on the ice and help my team on the ice," Gaudreau said. "I think that's something that would frustrate me in the game if I was taking unnecessary penalties and sitting in the box when I should be on the ice. I look at it that way." He has spent just 38 minutes in the sin bin in 232 career NHL contests.

Johnny Gaudreau hopes to avoid playing in the World Hockey Championship again next year because he wants to be playing late in the spring in the NHL playoffs.

"I thought we deserved to play a little bit longer as a team in Calgary, but it was a great opportunity to go over there, represent USA, and I thought I did a good job," Gaudreau said. "Playing in late May and early June, if you want to win a Stanley Cup, you know you have to be prepared to play in those later months. I think by going over there and still playing, it's just going to make you better in the long run. That was something that Brad (Flames general manager Brad Treliving) and I talked about a little bit — we want to get used to playing in these later months." He recorded six goals and 11 points in eight games for the United States at the tournament, but he had just two assists in four playoff matches for the Flames. Anaheim swept Calgary in four games and the result did not sit well with Gaudreau, but he feels the team will learn from that.

Johnny Gaudreau was named a finalist for the Lady Byng Memorial Trophy on Sunday.

The trophy "is an annual award given to the player adjudged to have exhibited the best type of sportsmanship and gentlemanly conduct combined with a high standard of playing ability." It is voted on by the Professional Hockey Writers' Association. The last member of the Flames to win it was Jiri Hudler in 2014. Bob MacMillan was the first Flame to take home the honors in 1979, when the team was still in Atlanta. Hall of Famer and Flames' Cup champion Joe Mullen won the other two times for the franchise, in 1987 and 1989.

Johnny Gaudreau has decided to play for Team USA in the 2017 World Championships.

Gaudreau is extending his 2016-17 campaign after the Flames were swept by Anaheim in the first round of the playoffs. He had two assists and a minus-three rating in that series.
Apr 21 - 3:32 PM

Johnny Gaudreau is hoping to be calmer going into his second trip to the playoffs.

Gaudreau got his first taste of playoff action in 2015 and while he did well with four goals and nine points in 11 games, it was a mental challenge for him. "That first series, the first round, I was nervous every single game," said Gaudreau. "Now this is the time to learn from that experience … we have a little more experience throughout our whole team now, I think." He'll get his first chance to see what his added experience will contribute when the Flames play Anaheim on Thursday.
